Frequently Asked Questions
Registration for e-ECE 2021
If you are encountering issues when trying to register for e-ECE 2021, please read the commonly Frequently Asked Questions below, which may answer your query. If you are still unsure, please email email@example.com and we will be pleased to assist!
1. I am an ESE member, and the 'Choose tickets' button is not working, what can I do?
If this is the case, then there are two reasons why this is happening:
- You are using a different email address from the one which is associated to your ESE membership account. Please note that you must use the email address which is linked with your membership to be able to proceed with registration.
- Your membership number is incorrect.
If you cannot remember which email address you have used for your membership, or what your membership number is, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a reminder of your membership details.
2. I am registering on behalf of someone else, but it won't let me 'Choose tickets'?
In this case, you are most likely using your own email address to register the delegate you are registering on behalf of. Once you have created an account for yourself, you are given the option to 'Register or book tickets for someone else'- after selecting this option, you must use the delegate’s information and not your own. I have a new membership, why isn’t my registration working?
It can take a few days for new memberships to update on our registration system. Please allow a few days after applying for ESE Membership before registering for the event, to ensure that the membership data on our systems have updated.
3. Can I still apply to become a member of ESE and be eligible for discounted registration to e-ECE 2021?
